it started with a rather bizarre nightmare and just seemed to keep going from there, little bits of weirdness all day long. fortunately, most of it was less serious than that, though some of it has been frustrating to varying degrees.
nightmare woke me up: kitten had been murdered and it had nothing to do with military service. and my mother wasn't a paranoid schizophrenic but a drug addict gone wild. saxy and i weren't married. you name it and it was pretty much out of whack.
for some reason though, i couldn't be rich. i mean, if everything was going to be so out of whack, the one thing that could really have been different was to be rich.
i'll never buy wal-mart again. it seems the clothes are the right size but the companies must think we women who wear size 20 or higher have the same proportions as those who wear size 12-18. it isn't so and i won't buy my clothes from wal-mart anymore despite the savings. i can wear the wal-mart clothes, they just aren't . . . well, i wouldn't say they're uncomfortable, but they don't quite fit right. other big women probably know exactly what i mean. the clothes fit, it's just a weird fit.
we would get just under $2000 on our taxes if one of my creditors hadn't already laid claim to it. too bad too since i owe $340 to the state. like i really needed to have to find another $300 in our already tight budget.
our house is an icicle and my husband is STILL leaving that damn bathroom window open. he's insane. the rest of us are just plain cold.
but you definitely wake up in the bathroom in the mornings!
my printer claims there's ink in my black ink cartridge. black ink, however, isn't printing on the page. i've tried cleaning and calibrating. finally went and purchased a new cartridge. so, for the moment, i print in color. i just hope the new cartridge will work. a new printer just isn't in the budget.
my on again-off again cycle is back top spotting, and currently off again. i still need to get in for an ultrasound, but jeeze, this is annoying.
vagner has taken to running around the house and stopping in front of anything that looks like a door and giving the weirdest rowling meow. i can't even begin to describe the noise he makes, it's just too bizarre.
at least work was pretty quiet today. the kids were good, even the classes that other teachers warned me tend to be on the more uncontrolled side were pretty well behaved, especially after i moved the noise makers near me so i could keep a better eye on them.
i've been a bit tired coming home the last few days, even with an easier work load. yesterday there was a bunch of running around we had to do, which ended with a dinner out for saxy and i (we haven't done that in a bit). today there was the migraine that tried to get started, but i took my meds and kept it at bay. apparently that doesn't stop those suckers from wiping me out.
hopefully the rest of the week will be less tiring, and maybe a little less weird. sometimes a standard, plain jane, no excitement day is a good thing, and i've had enough excitement in various forms - weird and otherwise - to last me awhile.
now excuse me while i dig hitomi out from under the sink. silly cat.
